October 19 - October 25

What to Expect

If you’ve opted in for this week you can expect this fragrant bouquet on Tuesday or Wednesday if you’re in Vancouver, Thursday if you’re in Richmond, Surrey, or Burnaby, or on Friday if you’re on the North Shore or in the Tri-Cities. 

In the Box

In the box you’ll find disbuds, Oriental lilies, spray mums, alstroemeria and solidago

In the Vase

Our flowers will be laid out head to tail, carefully remove your stems from the tissue paper and trim ¼ of an inch of the bottom of each stem as you begin arranging them in your vase. Add one pack of flower food and read your flower care guide!

In Bloom

We can’t wait for you to see this week’s bouquet! Let this bouquet see you all the way through this late October week. The whole bouquet will need a few days to open once it arrives. 

This Weeks Stems

Oriental Lilies

Once you give these fragrant beauties a few days to open up, they’ll quickly become the star of the show. As they open they’ll need lots of water so make sure to watch that water level!

Spray Mums

These colourful sprays are some of our favourites, in fact we wait all year for them to come in! They’re from the same family as the disbuds so the same rules apply: make sure to use that flower food!

Solidago

We love using this fluffy fall flower as a pop of colour. Thanks Smit Farms for a gorgeous bunch this week!

Disbuds

thanks Quik Farms for these gorgeous blooms in such a wonderful array of complimenting textures and colours. Chrysanthemums love their flower food so make sure to change the water often and use that second pack a few days in!

Alstroemeria

Welcome back to one of our favourite blooms. We love how long lasting alstro are, and the fun surprise of watching them open up is great!

Tips and Tricks

When your flowers arrive they may look a little tired, but fear not, they will perk right up once they have some water!

Cut all of your stems at a 45 degree angle and trim off the leaves below the water line.

Be sure to add your flower food, it makes a world of difference!

After 3-4 days, recut your stems, change the water and add the second pack of flower food.

Some of your flowers may last longer than others, freshen up the arrangement by pruning the spent stems.
